This policy document includes a Priority Framework for Action (PFA) for Nepal on climate change adaptation and disaster risk management in agriculture. It draws the actions from the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) and National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (NSDRM) as well as from field experiences. It builds on the strengths and comparative advantage of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC) and, at the same time, specific actions are proposed considering the existing gaps and weaknesses. Moreover, the Framework lays out activities for achieving the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) and several other climate change related priorities. The PFA uses an integrated approach by considering short-term (disaster response), short to medium-term (Disaster Risk Reduction) and medium to long-term (climate change adaptation) priorities.
